Since I worked 30 years in the telephone industry and collect antique telephone, I found this post card quite interesting. The car was customized by art car artist Howard Davis, shown wearing his "Teleman" superhero outfit. This car was modeled after a #2500 push button telephone. The art car is registered and drivable. I have later found out that the car was stored
in a building in which the roof collapsed because of the weight of the snow and crush the car.
